Rumors and lies are poisonous....

The poison travels,

By word of mouth,

Spreading abusive lies.

Deceptively, destructively,

Wildfire.

_

The poison causes,

An epidemic,

Infecting the minds of others.

Consuming, corrupting,

Disease.

_

The poison speaks,

lies of me,

Metastasizing severe untruths.

Deceiving, damaging,

Rumor.

_

The poison kills,

Me inside,

Others turn away from me.

Forsaken, fragile,

Alone.

_

The poison promotes,

Tormenting laughter,

Insults dirscted at me.

Humiliated, harrassed,

Tortured.

_

The poison leaves,

A sick feeling,

Melancholy gnaws at my soul.

Wary, withdrawn,

Depression.

_

The poison compels,

Me to fight,

The opinion of my peers.

Denying, defying,

Rebellion

_

I will stand,

I will battle,

I will destroy,

The poison.

YAY FOR ERIN!!!! I love this poem, it's cooooooooool.
One of my fave lines is:

Melancholy gnaws at my soul.

Iz sweet. I also love the use of the words consuming and corrupting. This is a great poem because you use some poetis strategy things, like the lasat two lines of every paragraph are just words, but they still have a huge meaning and add so much to the poem. GRREAT JOB!!!

Very dark.I like that.I don't think the poison ever dies.We all have the poison in our veins.We constantly fight it everyday.The more we try to fight it the more it spreads.Geat comparission.
